A nice mild hike, fun to reach the observatory at the end. Mostly shaded the whole way.

Description

This is a nice trail, clearly marked most of the way and a gentle incline for the majority of the trail that gets slightly steeper by the end. Observatory at the end is a cool payoff but the accomplishment is a little tempered by the fact that it's possible just drive up.

There are several dedicated parking spots halfway around the campground loop, do not park in a campground spot unless you want to pay the site fee.
